Who is on the plum tree?
My poem Preponderance is featured on Into The Bardo today. Thank you Jamie Dedes.
When thunder rolls on the mountain, I will remain small;
In a time of humility, I will cherish modesty’s virtue.
In a time of mourning, I will uplift with sombre reverence;
In a time of want, I will be resourcefully frugal.
If I should try to fly too high, my wings would be melted by a greater god.
So I will remain in the nest, where I am safe.
I will strive instead to be to be content with Self.
This is the greatest success imaginable.
I have nothing to prove to me or to others.
Posturing is unnecessary.
Strength lies in guileless sincerity ~
Mourning is selfless compassion.
Modesty is an unshakeable faith
That allows grace to flow to others
With no loss to Self.
– Niamh Clune
